I was wondering if it is a good thing to have a fixed menu on top of the screen after the user scrolls, this seems to be a growing tendency and I'm not sure what to think about it.


Your opinion is different if the layout is boxed?

  • Hi @Lucas. Welcome to the UX Stack Exchange! I think your question already has an answer: "Fixed-position header and menu on a web page -- is that okay?" Oct 17, 2013 at 4:04

    The 'reflow the header and make it sticky as you scroll' was 'cool' the first 20 times I saw it. But it's getting a bit tired. I find it incredibly distracting that as I scroll, stuff is animating and rearranging elsewhere on the screen. If you don't think the content on your site is important, by all means, distract people from reading it. :D
